Minneapolis engagement session at the stone arch bridge

Couples & Weddings
December 14, 2016

October is the perfect time of year to plan a Minneapolis engagement session at the stone arch bridge. You’ve got the stunning city skyline on one side of the river, fall foliage perfection on the other side, comfortable, cozy weather, and (of course) the epic icon-ness of the bridge itself.

Brett and Susan are a Twin Cities couple planning a beautiful and happy wedding for next October. Their wedding will be at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, and in planning their engagement session, they wanted to choose a setting that would feel distinct from the flowers and fields of the Arboretum. They just bought their first home together in Minneapolis, and so  the beautiful skyline, stone arch bridge, and St. Anthony Main neighborhood seemed like a fitting backdrop to document this moment in their lives.

In crafting Brett and Susan’s engagement portraits, we wanted to capture a mix of relaxed, happy portraits that would document their personalities and love for each other. We spent some time wandering on the bridge, with the setting sun and the golden skyline behind them, and then adventured through the park on St. Anthony Main for some cozy, happy portraits.
